I'm sure you, like me, have seen the crawl on ESPN indicating teams that are "in" with Wofford from the Southern. They go onto state "0" wins against top 50 teams and a low RPI. I would point out that for a mid-major team like ourselves it is very difficult to get wins over a top 50 team. If we are very good they won't play us, and, if they do play us it is always at their place early in the season. In our last 22 games we are 17-5. No one is saying we are world beaters, but we are a much better team than we were during the first 10 games. A basketball guru who digs deep enough will find Wofford to be a team more worthy than their RPI. Make any of the top 50 teams only play other top teams on the road and their record might be a little different!
